Whether you are a professional photographer or not, photos can bring a lot of joy to a lot of people. This can be because it expresses your feelings, you want to share your memories with others, or simply because you like what you’re photographing. Here are my 4 reasons for loving photography so much:
- I get to shape reality. Whether life is going well or not, I can make it look like everything is in control and I’m happy with the way things are going. This does not mean I want to spread a wrongful image of what my life is like, but simply lets me focus on the positive and remember what’s good in life.
- It brings people together. One picture can bring many people together. Whether it’s a cute puppy, a funny picture, or even a product announcement, it generates a sense of community, which I think it amazing.
- Can be a great hobby and a way to pass the time. You can spend more time outside taking beautiful shots, or even spend hours editing a photo so you’re fully happy with it. If you enjoy these things, it can be a great way to fill your day.
- A picture is worth a thousand words. Sometimes there just aren’t any words to explain how you feel, but a picture can be the perfect way to show your feelings.
There are many more reasons why I love photography, but that’ll come later 😊
